Preheat the slow cooker to auto or low setting. In a food processor, combine the chillies, cinnamon, cumin, mace, paprika, lemon juice, ground almonds and half the coriander and pulse until smooth. In a bowl, combine the paste and the king prawns and mix thoroughly to coat.
In a frying pan, heat the oil and add the onions and garlic. Cook and stir for 2 minutes until soft. Add the root ginger and stir for a further few minutes. Transfer to the slow cooker. In the same pan, increase the heat and add the contents of the chicken and paste mixing bowl. Stir continuously for 3 to 4 minutes at a gentle simmer. Add the korma paste and yoghurt and mix well. Season and transfer everything to the slow cooker. Cook on auto or low setting for 5 hours or on high for 3 hours.
For the last half an hour of cooking, stir in the cream and season again if necessary. Serve with the remainder of the chopped coriander.
